winter activities

Just say no to hibernating.

by Shea Homes Colorado on February 18, 2016

 

Ah. It’s the season of coziness. Saturday afternoons by the fire. Digging into a big bowl of chili. Blissfully nodding off, lulled by the soundtrack of your latest Netflix binge-watch.

We can do better than this, Coloradans.

Especially if you live in one of our Shea Homes Colorado CommunitiesBackCountry, Stepping Stone, or Reunion – winter need not be a four-walled purgatory until spring. Warm days are coming soon, so now’s the time to take steps (literally) to avoid a panic attack when shopping for your swimsuit.

At BackCountry, there are easy, daily ways to get moving. Strap on your snowshoes and explore the seven miles of trails and 467 acres of open space within BackCountry.  Or venture onto the trails and 8,200 acres of open space in the adjacent wilderness area.  No snowshoes? No problem. Residents can borrow a pair from the Sundial House whenever there is 12” or more of snow on the ground. That same terrain can be a blast for expert cross country skiers to explore too.
